Busy Morning

Well, I've been up since 8am and have accomplished alot so far. I finished scrubbing my bathroom. I swear I have too much's all over everything!! It's amazing how dusty this place gets when I work so much and neglect to keep up on it.

I have decided to move my computer to the livingroom. A year and a 1/2 ago when I moved into this apartment, I had it in here. The dog pretty much decided that it didn't belong in here since he chewed the phone outlet off the wall. So the computer has been in my bedroom ever since. Little miss fix it myself finally decided to fix the phone jack in the wall and it's amazing that it really works. I get in this mood when I "clean". Furniture usually never stays put. Something always moves. My Bob told me that I'd end up rearranging the bedroom and I told him I wouldn't cause I didn't feel like it. Well Honey....go ahead and say it...LOL

Now I have this empty spot beside the bed. I just have to figure something out to go there. Since the computer table is no longer in the corner, the bed looks silly where it is. I just haven't figured out where I want to put it now. The good thing is I haven't just sat around being lazy today. The bad thing is I have to go to work in a little while.

I have quite the busy schedule this week. Tonight 2 to midnight. Tuesday 8 to 9. Wednesday 2 to midnight. Thursday 8 to 9 then Friday from 6:30 to 4. Can we all say she needs this vacation!! Sataurday will be here before I know it and it will be time to go pick up My Bob from the airport!!!! It's what keeps me going.

Feel free to check out the map I have added to the side bar. Hope you'll all check it out.

Her Childhood Story.........

As she remembers it.....................................

Part One

She never really knew why she liked to be alone. She would just always gather her things and head for the closet. First it was the card table to set up and place just so in front of the closet door. The space in the hallway was small as the house it's self was small. She would gather a sheet to use as the tent frame. This was usually the one from her bed. Carefully placing the hangers over the sheet as she hung it in place; the tent began to take shape. She hung the sheet over the card table for the perfect hiding spot. Feeling secure, she went to gather her things. She brought her story books, her playdoh machine and her favorite thing to play with; the erector set. She loved building towers and making interesting inventions. Her imagination was endless when she was in that closet.
For her, this was her special place to be what she wanted to be. It was a place where she could not have to see her world around her and all that was going on. While she was in her tent she didn't listen to anything that was happening "out there". For this tent was her "home" inside the home she lived in. Some days her Mother allowed her to have her lunches in her tent as long as the lunch was just a sandwich. Most days her Mother allowed her to hang the tent because her Mother knew she was not bothering anyone or anything. Her Mother could get things done without having to worry about what she was up to.
Her Father never liked the tent. He would always make her take it down and tell her not to put it up again. He would always yell at her for making a mess in the hallway and for blocking the hall so that no one could walk through there. Her Father never understood her playing in the closet. Her Father would yell at her Mother for allowing this behavior to go on. She hated the sound of her father's voice. Nothing happy or uplifting ever came out of it. She cringed when she knew he was home from work.

She tried to stay quiet most of the time though she was no angel either. Looking back now she knows she was just being a kid. Like the time she was playing with the erector set and her trucks in the bedroom. It was her construction site. At her young age she had no concept of electricity and how it could hurt you. All she knew was the electrical outlet on the wall and a bobby pin were needed tools for her building that day. With the trucks gathered around and used for transporting the pieces of the erector set, she began digging in the electrical outlet. She couldn't understand why her Mother was screaming at her so much over the building she was doing.

Throwing her toys across the room to get to her wasn't fun and it scared her. She didn't like this tone the Mother had. It lead to other hurts. Only this time it was different. There were just threats for when the Father came home and found out what had been done that she would get it. Her Father never hit her. Only once or twice that she ever remembers and those never hurt like the Mother's hits did. She was scared none the less. Hiding was all she could think to do. Under the settee was the perfect place she thought. She never counted on them finding her there. This settee wasn't like any other couch they ever had. This one had elastic straps to hold the cushions in place. She held onto those straps for her dear life. She knew if they reached her she would hurt for the rest of the night. All she can remember in looking back now was how angry the Father was that he couldn't get her out from under the settee. She remembers hearing him say to lift it and get her out. They couldn't get it to move as she was holding on tightly. Then the cushions were removed and they saw what she was doing under there. She never remembers getting out and never remembers any hurts that day. Perhaps she escaped the pain that day. Perhaps it's escaped her memory because it hurt too badly. She'll never know now. She likes to remember that the Father gave up trying. Some how she learned not to ever play with the electrical outlet again. To this day she doesn't know whatever happened to the erector set.

to be continued..........................

Daylight Savings Time ends tonight!!!

It's time to gain an hour more of sleep tonight...(wish that really worked). I've been thinking about it all day at work so I wouldn't forget to set the clocks when I got home. Thanks Dale for the reminder. Can you believe some states don't even use Daylight Savings Time!? I hate this time of year when it's so much darker around 5 to 6 pm now. So what that it's brighter in the morning....LOL. I think I always need something to complain about..LOL.

I talked to my son tonight for about 1/2 an hour. He's doing great and loves his job. He's been busy working and doing some side stuff on the weekends. He asked me again if I was still planning to come down in January for my Birthday. I told him I still want to but the prices for flights aren't coming down. He sounded so disappointed. I'll come up with something. By the time January rolls around I'm sure I'll need another break from here..LOL. My son is working with a crew that builds new housing complexes in Jacksonville, Fl. He's been working with the plumbers that lay the new piping under the houses. (he does more than that, but that's all I remember at the moment). I asked him what was new and he told me he got a ticket!! I about died when he said that because he doesn't even have a driver license at the moment. He told me to relax he wasn't driving. He was a passenger when his boss got pulled over and David didn't have his seatbelt on so he got a ticket for that. He's mad now because it's for $75. Oh well.

Better hop off here and change these clocks before I forget. Besides, it's time to talk with My Bob for the evening.

Another long day........

I'm venturing out for yet another long work day...9 to 7. Atleast today I'm working the grill & the fountain so when I'm done playing with food I get to play with ice

Hope you all have a great day and enjoy it!

Only 6 more working days left for me then it's VACATION!!!!

A first grade teacher collected well known proverbs.
She had twenty-five students in her class and she presented each child in her class the first half of a proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb.
It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders.

24. When the blind lead the blind...... get out of the way.

And the WINNER and last one!

25. Better late than...... pregnant.

It's Friday

And that means nothing to me really. I was supposed to have yesterday and today off and that would be my last days off until my upcoming vacation. But, alas, I agreed to to cover a 5 to 10pm grill shift tonight then possibly have Sunday off or atleast not have to go back in until 8pm to close. (let me stop here).

Getting ready for this vacation. I'm so excited. I remember when Bob and I first booked his flight and our hotel. I started my countdown at 50 days. I now have only 7 working days left till vacation!!!!!!!!!! Before you know it, Bob will be here and I'll be the happiest woman in Canton, Ohio!!!...LOL.

He arrives Saturday the 5th in Cleveland around 4:30pm. After the hour and a 1/2 drive back to my place we'll spend a great evening together "catching up on lost time". On Sunday the 6th, we have tickets to go see "Care Bears Live" at the Canton Civic Center which is only 5 minutes from my house. We are taking my daughter and grand daughter. It's a surprise for her. she's going to love it. Bob would rather see the Rolling Stones live, but he loves the little Princess and will do just about anything for her. He's a good man. Monday the 7th we head out for Erie,Pa so I can meet his sister. I'm looking forward to that and sure hope she likes me. On the 9th we head on up to Niagara Falls...(drop the truck off for repairs and pick up the rental car) and not return for the truck till Friday. Stopping in Youngsville,Pa on the way back to see where Bob grew up and all the sights around there. I'm really looking forward to that. Spending the 12th back at my place then dread taking him back to the airport on Sunday the 13th. We are going to be busy and I'm sure the time will stand nearly still for us as each time we get together it seems to. I miss him so much and have so much to look forward to.

Well, sitting here isn't getting things done around here that I need to so it's off I go.

Almost forgot...Happy HNT day!

I decided last week to join in the fun of posting on Half Nekkid Thursday. I'll be keeping my photos as interesting as possible without ever showing more than absolutely neccessary ofcourse. Since I just started this I nearly forgot to do it today so mine is up pretty late. By clicking on the new link below my archives (which I have to's in the wrong spot) you'll find the blog that started it all and the rules for doing this. So's mine for today. These are my big size 10 feet for this small 5' 4"


Recently, I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. ->
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

This is> how it manifests:>>
I decide to water my garden.

As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide my car needs washing.

As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first.

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only 1 check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered.

I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.

I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.

At the end of the day:

----the car isn't washed
----the bills aren't paid,
----there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter,
----the flowers don't have enough water,
----there is still only 1 check in my check book,
----I can't find the remote,
----I can't find my glasses,
----and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.

Do me a favor, will you? Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember to whom it has been sent.

Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!!


P.S. I just remembered, I LEFT THE WATER RUNNING IN THE DRIVEWAY!!!!!!!!!

When I came home from work this evening...this was in my email and I cracked up. Thought this was a great way to share it.

Oh yeah.....I'm feeling tons better thanks to the sinus meds I picked up on my way to work. Now that it's 12:20 am I'm going to bed.

Wednesday, October 26, 2005

Is today over yet?????????

So yeah, okay...the day started early...maybe 7:30 when I woke up. (not counting the time I woke up at 1:20am and went back to bed). Tried to talk to Bob for a little bit this morning but my head was pounding so bad (still is) from this sinus crap, that I just went back to bed. I even put a blanket over my bedroom window to keep out that beautiful sunshine. I love my dog and always let him on the bed.....but he drove me nuts and I had to kick him off. Now here I lay, head pounding, nose hurting with every inhale (only able to through the right side) trying to sleep it off until the meds kick in. Not happening. Why is it that anything and everything runs through your mind ninety miles an hour when all you want to do is get some sleep. Yesterday kicked my ass at work. I was so exhausted after I got home and showered that I nearly told Bob I didn't want to talk and just go to bed. I know better than to attempt to go to bed before 10pm. I wake up in the middle of the night and can't back back to sleep. Besides, not talking to him drives me crazy. I miss him too much to atleast not get to hear him before I go to bed. We like to hop on MSN messenger and play a few games of minesweeper and chit chat. Well, he kicked my ass and then we called it a night and went to bed at 10pm. So you would think I would have gotten some good rest. Nope.

After laying back down this morning with even a pillow over my head to try to drown out the outside noise...( I hate the traffic that goes by on my street), my pup decided that it was daytime and the blanket on the window didn't fool him. He wanted to play and doesn't understand that today I feel like shit. My head feels like it's in a vise grip squeezing my temples together and forcing all the blood to flow to my forehead. Have I mentioned that I can't breathe out of the left side of my nose?!!!!!!!! The tylenol sinus obviously isn't working today. I'm going to have to get dressed now and drive ( even though the light hurts my eyes) and get some clariton-D. I hate paying for that, but it does seem to do the trick. All I want to do is curl up in my nice warm bed in my really dark room...(have Bob hold me for awhile) and sleep till tomorrow. Is that too much to want????

So yeah, I'm not a girlie girl but dammit I do like to whine and get some spoiling when I don't feel so good. I just want to today to be over all ready and for me it just started. This sucks.

Reason for not posting today..........

I'll be working from 9am to 8pm cooking on the grill line!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe if I'm not too tired when I get home and shower, I'll change my mind about posting.
I'll atleast catch up on my "online friends" blogs though.
Have a great day!
((((((((( HUGS to ALL)))))))))))

Make Your Own Pumpkin

I hope this link works. I just got this in an email and had tons of fun with it. If it works for you, pass it on so all your friends can have a great time. This was pretty cool.

Is it really morning already........

It's so tough to get up and move in the mornings after I close then have to turn right around and be there in the morning. Oh well...such is life.....I'll deal with it.

I've all but given up on "the game" in Brico's blog. Too much drama here in my land of Blog to even get a chance to look at the other blogs in question let alone try to figure out who goes to which computer station. It was such a grand idea and started off as a great challenge. Perhaps next game.

sitting here drying off after my shower and trying to have thoughts is not coming so easy. Guess it's time to finish getting ready for work. Speaking of which.....(wow, a thought) my first post in this new blog of sister thought I said off to the land of the unemployed and wanted to know what was up.........I had to reread it thinking I had a huge typo....(whew) was just my stupid way of saying go to work by saying.."Right now I have to get ready to leave to the land of the employed"...with myself being so paranoid to even mention the word work that day. So I figured I'd clear that up incase anyone else read that the wrong way. I'm most defenately still employed.

In 2 weeks from today....I'll be one happy girl. That will be my last day of work for 9 glorious days of vacation with Bob. He arrives on Saturday the 5th!!!. He's not leaving until Sunday the 13th!! Final arrangements have been made for dropping off the truck for repairs and we'll soon have a rental car reserved for the 2 days the truck is in the shop. Now cool is that. Drive to Erie, PA to meet Bob's sister and hang out for 2 to Grand Island, NY and drop off the truck with my friend to repair while Bob and I travel on to Niagra Falls for 2 days (while the truck gets some attention) then drive back through Youngsville,PA (after returning the rental and picking up my truck) to see where Bob grew up then back to my place for 2 days. I'm so excited and just can't wait. I love having something to look forward to.

Now that I have woken up more and expressed some's time to hop off here and get ready to go.

HNT....what the heck!

So after thinking it over for a little while this morning I figured..."what the heck"...might as well have some fun

Seeing how I don't have a working digital cam yet, my web cam had to be used as a substitute. I wasn't even sure this would work as I haven't attempted it before. Just a little out of focus but oh well.

So does this mean I've joined up with the rest of the HNT people

So this is a new day.............

I still have to get used to seeing this new format I chose. (Looks so much like Kathi's that I keep thinking for a second I'm on her All in all, yesterday was a very good day. (even at w**k) I get a phone call lastnight at about 10pm. It's my Mother...."It's Mom..sorry to bother you this late and at work, but my furnace pilot light blew out. Can you come over to relight it?" Well, that's never an issue and ofcourse I'm always telling her I'll be right there. My first thought was that it wouldn't be before midnight by the time we got the place closed and cleaned up and left the place. She has a neighbor guy that tells her and me all the time..."Maxine, anytime you need anything, you just give me a call". I'm thinking....hmmmm....have her do that. I tell her to call me back after she talks to him so I know she'll be all set. She calls me back alright. Says..."I talked to him...he doesn't want to come over and look at it. Says he doesn't know what style furnance I have and how old it is". WTF is that???!!!!!!!! How hard is it to take the cover off and READ the instructions!! No, lets let the 73 yr old neighbor lady sit in her cold house because I'm too lazy to walk across my back yard and help her out. I reassured MOm that I would be over promptly after leaving the restaurant. Sure enough, I pull in her driveway at midnight. I was happy to see that her house was still at 66ยบ. Chilly yeah, but she thought it was simply freezing. (it's hard seeing her get old...she used to be the last person to turn up the thermostat). It took me all of 5 minutes to relight her furnace. Told her goodnight and came straight home.

I wanted to thank you all for you continued support through my little personal Blogging crisis. It's seems all alittle silly to me now. I valued all the emails and replys. Thank you very much.

So I wake up at 7:30 this morning and chat with My Bob for a little bit before he heads off to work then go scan the web for some news. What's the first article I read? "Mother tosses 3 kids into SF Bay"
How?? Why?? Those poor inisent little babies. My heart sunk when I read that. Voices?? I just don't understand this and if this woman gets some light sentence on insanity, I for one will be very angry about that! I can't dwell on this today though.

I was actually in a great mood yesterday and I want to stay that way. I like how much better I feel when I'm in a good mood. It's too draining to be upset all the time.

So now it's time to go reading my favorite blogs and see what everyone else is up to. (reminds myself to be careful opening Brico''s HNT day after all)....LOL. Which reminds me...Brico, I did see your invite to start participating in HNT. I'm thinking about it. Maybe a candid foot or ankle shot once in a while....but you'll not see anything like the daring other's That's just not me. I'm still in the thinking about it stage right now. You just never know.

Starting over

I have given this much thought. I have decided that in order for me to get back to they way I was...(at ease in posting my thoughts)...I had to create an all new blog. I'll be getting back in the swing of things when I have more time.

Right now I have to get ready to leave to the land of the employed. Any and all feed back is greatly appreciated.
